The most recent numbers I have in front of me are from the FirstEquity Aviation Almanac 2002....
...but LAX was the USA's (and I believe the world's) largest O&D airport (i.e., not market) followed by ATL and ORD.
Among the somewhat surprisingly low end of the scale was JFK & MIA, both with lower O&D than many secondary and tertiary operations, such as MCI. This of course due in part to their status as international gateways of the highest calibre, and the abundance of alternate airports in their general metro area.

"I can't imagine that ATL is the largest O&D market. There is no way that it is bigger than NYC."
You didn't read what he said. They are tops as an AIRPORT for O&D. They are the only real commercial airport in ATL wheras New York has 3 or 4 commercial ones (5 if you count HPN) to divide up the city's O&D traffic among.
